Divine protectionThose who seek out God’s truth receive assurance that God protects them. Those who disregard it and embrace falsehood will encounter his opposition.

The eyes of the Lord keep guard over knowledge and him who has it, but He overthrows the words of the treacherous.
Proverbs 22.12 AMP

God’s eyes indicate his pleasure in people of knowledge and his protection of those who seek it. As the Amplified Bible reflects, the Lord’s protection extends to “its principles and possessors” (Jamieson, Faussett, Brown). Plans to harm the faithful will come to naught.

What a comfort to those who hold on to truth, that God will hold on to them! Those who suffer for truth find peace in the Lord who is in control of their destiny.

Thank you, Lord, for confidence in your word that guarantees your protection of those who keep it.

Hold this thought: God guards the truth and them who keep it.
